    the job of

    Is this sentence correct:

    1-In our university, like John and Pete, Roger has the job of teaching French to undergrads.

    I think it is correct but my problem with the sentence is that it might seem to be implying that there is one job and three people have it.

    It suggests to me that there is one course/class/session, with three people sharing the teaching.
